Live Simply Award
This year as a school we are hoping to achieve the Cafod Live Simply Award. This is an opportunity for us to respond to Pope Francis’ invitation to “work with generosity and tenderness in protecting this world which God has entrusted to us.”
To earn this award, we need to show as a school we are living:
- Simply – how we encourage our families to consume less in our daily lives. Taking the time to be more reflective, prayerful and considerate to others.
- In solidarity with the poor- being aware that other people might be experiencing difficulties, vulnerabilities, injustice or exclusion.
- Sustainably with creation- learning ways that can help rebalance our relationship with the environment. Remembering that God gave us this Earth for us to care for.
We already do so much as a school to fulfil these objectives, but this year we have planned some special events which we will have a positive impact upon our local, school and global communities.
- Working to help tackle hunger both in our community and globally.
- Collaborating with our locally community to make our area cleaner.
- Thinking of ways we as a school can become more sustainable in our day to day lives.
- Developing stronger links with our community.
